Yoko Ono Unwrapped – Heritage Open Days Festival

Venue Bluecoat
Admission Free
Start Time 18:30
End Time 20:30

As part of this year’s Heritage Open Days, join them to explore Yoko Ono’s event hosted at the Bluecoat in 1967 in a fascinating talk with our Director of Cultural Legacies Bryan Biggs.

This year’s Heritage Open Days theme is ‘Unwrapping Creativity’.

A leading figure in conceptual and performance art, experimental film and music, Ono first visited the Bluecoat in 1967, when she presented an event, Music of the Mind and the world premiere of The Fog Machine, to a packed hall. Featuring audience interaction, it included people being invited to wrap her in bandages. Returning to the venue in 2008 during Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture celebrations, she referenced this previous event by asking the audience to this time unwrap her.

Join Bluecoat for this fascinating talk by Director of Cultural Legacies Bryan Biggs as they revisit these two iconic occasions. The talk will be accompanied by a rich display of archival material relating to the artist’s Liverpool visits.

Doors 6.30pm
